Eid-Mubarak! Eid Al-Adha or Bakra Eid will be celebrated on August 22, 2018, in India. Eid Al-Adha translates to the “Festival of Sacrifice”. According to the Hijri calendar, it is celebrated in Dhul Hijja, the last month of the calendar. It is believed to honour the Prophet Ibrahim, who almost sacrificed his son as an act of devotion to God Almighty. Looking at the gesture, God sent his angels to him, and they replaced his son with a goat. The goat then became symbolic and is sacrificed every year on this day.
The animal is sacrificed and cut into three parts. The first part is given as a gift to the relatives, the second to the poor and the third is prepared at home to celebrate the festival. The distribution is done in a way that no one is left unfed.
On this day, Muslims go to mosques and pray for peace and prosperity. After the prayers, all family and friends join together and eat delicious mutton dishes. Delicious delicacies are prepared on this to commemorate the festival. Here are some delicious recipes that you can eat on this Eid:
